Special Permission Requests

Intra district "special permission" is defined as: parents asking permission to move to a school outside of the school zone in which they reside. This special permission is based on space availability.

The Office of Student Services will be looking at projected number of students to determine an approximate number of spaces available at each school. This process assists the district in making decisions on the best use of a quality learning environment. After space availability is determined, Student Services will work with families who request special permission. All requests will be considered but not guaranteed.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: If granted special permission, is my student allowed to automatically stay until they have completed the highest grade level at that school?


A: No, families are required to seek special permission annually. There are several factors that may change during the course of a school year. Only students residing in that school zone are exempt from requesting intra district special permission.



Q: What is the purpose of doing special permission?


A: In order for the NLRSD to run in an effective, efficient and equitable learning community, we must be diligent in our approach to student learning. This process allows the district to make decisions based on student enrollment numbers and creating a World Class District.

Pre-K Registration

NLRSD Pre-K Applications are not processed on a first come, first serve basis. Children are placed based on need and the number of qualifying factors they have. Registration for Pre-K continues through August 2016.

Four year olds (Children that are four by August 1, 2016) have priority on pre-k slots in elementary schools. Any slots that have not been filled by July 23rd, will be offered to three year olds (Children that are three by August 1, 2016). For this reason, several of our schools do not have three year olds at least at the beginning of the school year. This is indicated on the list below.

Due to the Capital Improvement Project and new schools/classrooms opening, some pre-k sites may have more or less children than they have in the past. We will do our best to place your child at one of your first choices, however, the more choices there are, the more likely your child will be placed.

Please indicate your School Preference on your application by ranking them 1st , 2nd , etc. You may rank as many schools as you want as long as you are willing and able to transport your child to that site.

We will notify parents of children that were not placed at one of their choices once we have finished placing all other children. Parents are responsible for notifying the Early Childhood Office at 955-3640 of any changes in address, phone number, and/or income.

There will be a Mandatory District-wide Pre-k Enrollment Event in August. ALL pre-k families are required to attend one of the sessions to complete paperwork and confirm they are coming.
